COVID-19 Vaccine Information

COVID19 vaccines are still in short supply, but you can add your name to the notification list so that you can keep up to date with the latest news about the vaccine and appointments.

Sign up with the State of New Jersey Vaccine Registration portal here: https://covidvaccine.nj.gov/ and you will receive updates and notifications about vaccine availability.

You can also sign up with Atlantic Health System because they have their own vaccine appointment alert form, here: https://www.atlantichealth.org/conditions-treatments/coronavirus-covid-19/covid-vaccine/schedule-vaccine-appointment.html

Additionally, Passaic County has opened a vaccine mega-site and you can register for appointments there too. Read more about this.

Some CVS and ShopRite locations have also begun to take appointments for COVID vaccines.

Wanaque Borough Nurse Bernie McDavitt wants to alert all residents that if you have difficulty pre-registering for a COVID immunization using the State of New Jersey Vaccine Registration Portal, you can call the New Jersey COVID hotline at 1-855-568-0545 (between 8 am to 8 pm) to speak to someone who can help.
